What Is CBD?
CBD is one of over 100 naturally occurring compounds found in a group of flowering plants called Cannabis Sativa. THC ( tetrahydro cannabinol) is the most notorious of the compounds because of it’s psychotropic effects or “high” when used. On the other hand, CBD and the many non THC compounds derived from the cannabis sativa plant have the potential to offer many medicinal benefits without the “high”.
The Cannabis Sativa plant grows quickly and , for centuries, has been used to create fiber for industrial use. It’s products include textiles, paper, building materials and food. At some point today you will likely use a product derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant. This plant has two species- hemp and marijuana which can be considered close relatives, not twins. CBD is derived from the Hemp plant and, by definition, containing less than 0.3 %THC by dry weight while Marijuana classifies the variety of cannabis sativa that contains more than 0.3% THC by dry weight and can induce a “high” or psychotropic effect. Hemp contains higher levels of CBD which helps our bodies maintain overall wellness with no psychoactive effect.
How does CBD work?
In order to understand how CBD works in our bodies we must first understand how our cells function. Our cells communicate with each other through a complex cell messenger or signaling system. Cells can change their behavior based on the message they receive. The message (key) is received by a receptor (lock) located on the cell. When the key fits in the lock, the behavior of the cell can change. This complex signaling system, which was discovered in the 1990s is called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It plays a role in regulating many of our bodily functions related to our overall health and sense of wellbeing including sleep, mood, pain, immune, skin and nerve function.
The ECS has three components:
a)endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters (messengers) which are produced by our bodies and interact with receptors to keep our body functioning properly. Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are important in our body’s production of endocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids are plant derived sources and include CBD, THC which function similarly to our bodies endocannabinoids.
b) receptors bind endocannabinoids. They are scattered throughout our bodies function as a lock and cannabinoids act as the key.
c)Enzymes help to make and then break down the endocannabinoids
Is CBD legal?
Yes! Since 2018 the World Anti-Doping Agency no longer prohibits the use of CBD and the world health organization categorizes CBD as safe and well tolerated in humans. THC is still prohibited by these organizations.
The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp as a controlled substance and legalized hemp cultivation with restrictions. CBD is legal federally but must adhere to federal guidelines that it be sourced from the hemp plant and contain less than 0.3% THC by dry weight. State laws may vary. https://www.safeaccessnow.org/states provided updated information on the laws of each state regarding CBD
How Does CBD Help the Everyday Athlete?
Through exercise and training, all athletes, whether they are amateurs or professionals, place stress on the body, most notably on the muscles, joints, and skin. This wear and tear causes inflammation, which in turn leads to injury. Chronic use of nonprescription pain relievers, such as NSAIDs (naproxen sodium and ibuprofen), can cause kidney damage and potentially increase risk for stroke and cardiac events. Chronic use of prescription pain relievers can lead to addiction and overdose. While direct clinical studies of CBD use in athletes are unavailable at this time, information available on non-athletes can be extrapolated to the athlete population. CBD may offer the following benefits to athletes:
- anxiolytic - calm anxiety which plays a role in race performance
- non steroid anti-inflammatory benefits to manage training injuries
- improves sleep
- calms gut discomfort
Skin benefits of CBD : anti-inflammatory/ antioxidant
Neutralizes damage from environmental free radicals
Minimizes oil production
Hemp vs CBD oil
Both Hemp and Marijuana plant species have seeds, leaves, stalks and flowers. Hemp seed oil is made only from hemp seeds and is used for cooking and is a staple in skin care products due to its non pore clogging properties.
CBD oil is made from the leaves, stalks and flowers of the hemp plant which contain a higher concentration of CBD but and is non psychoactive as it contains < 0.3% THC.
CBD oil absorbs into the skin and binds to cannabinoid receptors in the body.

CBD should not show up on any drug test as long as you are purchasing third party tested CBD with no added THC. Professional athletes drug testing is often more sensitive and they could potentially test positive for trace amounts of THC if using CBD products.
